I just realized that we haven’t written anything about HypeTrain Digital’s action-adventure survival game “The Wild Eight” in a very long time (don’t miss out on our PC preview for “The Wild Eight!”). As a matter of fact, our latest “The Wild Eight” post was published back in October of last year.

I had a blast playing the pre-alpha demo version of “The Wild Eight”. That’s also why I hope to get a chance to play the full version of the game as soon as possible.

So that’s over six months ago. Well, I think you get the idea. Anyways, that’s also why I got quite happy when HypeTrain just informed us that “The Wild Eight” is getting a new update (the Researcher Vault content update) and a 40 percent Steam discount on April 29th:

“Hi Robin!

The Wild Eight is a cooperative survival action-adventure set in Alaskan wilderness full of dangers and secrets, available on Steam via Early Access. The game will be on sale on April 29-30 for 40% off. Here’s what The Wild Eight is about:

Explore the ruthless arctic wilderness and uncover the truth behind a mysterious plane crash that left its surviving passengers to die.Survive by gathering resources, crafting and improving your equipment at the camping site, escaping blizzards and fighting deadly beasts that lurk in the woods. Cooperate with other players online (up to 8 players in one party) or embark on the dangerous journey on your own. Find the uncanny anomalies, strange laboratories and abandoned facilities, full of useful loot and even something out of this world.

A new Researcher Vault content update is releasing this Sunday, April 29th. It will introduce some cool stuff:

New resource and craft system — look for Blueprints and use Scrap to create new valuable tools and deadly weapons

New items:

Circular Saw will quickly chop down trees and your enemies.

Portable Heater is a great way to warm yourself and your party while raiding the wild.

Repair Kits are your best friends if you want to keep your equipment functioning.

Spiked Stick is just like an ordinary stick, but it hurts more!

Taser electrocutes foes and stuns them for a couple of seconds — use this time wisely.

Snow Piles hide loot crates… or something dangerous!

New side quest that unlocks new fast travel location
You can now revive your teammates in online multiplayer

The next big expansion for The Wild Eight will release this summer. Stay tuned for more details! The Wild Eight is currently on Steam Early Access and is work in progress with the full release planned for Fall 2018. The game will be out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux.”HypeTrain Digital
